    Because What Goes Around...

    I do believe in getting what you can out of what comes your way. Yeah I'm an opportunist. I don't think that 'everything happens for a reason' But I do think you can find 'reasons for everything'. Do you catch my drift? Cm

    Learned To Be Still,...

    ..., and listen. If I do, I get the paths that I need to travel-if I do not and in my Human arrogance force the choice, I pay the price. I learned this in my much younger years, the ability to be still and just "listen",..., not hear. Turned to Christian Druid in my older teens...
